Why Does It Always Have to be Snakes?

Spotted when I went on my morning constitutional.  I think he was collecting rubber bands.

I don't recognize it, what kind is it?

Heck, I don't know. Just a garden snake.

One time I wanted to get back at a co-worker named Bert, who had dispatched me on a dead-snake call some 10 years earlier without telling me about the dead snake on the front porch at night.

Anyway I happened to see a good-sized dead snake lying in the road while I was on patrol one day, so I put it in the trunk of the car, got an empty Pizza box, coiled the snake in it,tied a piece of dental floss around the snake's neck, then taped the other end to the lid of the box and set it on Bert's desk.

His reaction (after slamming the lid and flinging the box on the floor)was to scream, "No one can say Sgt. Stumpf holds a grudge!!"

You are one cruel guy!

Love Indiana Jones's running aversion to snakes! The snakes up here need to learn how to swim because of all the rain we've been getting lately.

Unfortunately, they do know how to swim, so be careful. They will end up inside houses, as well as your yard. A dangerous situation. Hope all of you are okay in the flooding areas.

Eek. Why are snakes, even nice ones, so scary?

About a block from your house.
